X server freeze/crash problem
using NetBSD current kernel and current userland, I can get X11 freeze
in a strange way. I don't know if this happened with 5.1 release,
because the intel card did not work, that is why I switched to current.
I open an image display application (LaternaMagica of GNUstep) and load
fairly large images to display.
The whole X server will feeze, display total garbage made of rainbowed
stripes except for the mouse cursor which displays fine, but frozen. The
kernel is not frozen, I can power down the laptop by its power button.
I cannot however type anything and switch consoles.
There may be a bug in the application (which however, works on other
computers, even less-powered ones) but it should not be able to knock
out my X server.
